Grandma Crouch’s Cranberry Bread

A family member requested this recipe, so I thought I would share it with all of you too. There is a specific unnamed niece that hates cranberries but likes this so much she picks them out so she can eat it. Weird I know.

2 cups flour
3/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup cranberries
1 egg, beaten
juice and rind of 1 orange
1/2 cups chopped nuts
3 tbs shortening

Mix all dry ingredients. Put shortening in a measuring cup and fill with boiling water to 3/4 cup. Add this, juice and the egg to dry ingredients and mix. Add grated orange peel, nuts and cranberries and mix. If it seems too dry, add a little more water. Poor in a greased loaf pan and bake 1 hour at 350 degrees.
